      I have two deputies on GWW staff that handled all the details and
      planning. Unfortunately, they're already on-site so they can't answer
      questions. I'm not sure if they were brining in an extra backstop for crossbows (since hay won't cut it). We don't have a lot of crossbow competitors in Caid, largely in part because they are illegal in a number of cities and are not allowed at a lot of the ranges we hold events at most often. I cannot remember anyone competing at GWW with a crossbow since I began attending (GWW IV, this is XI), that doesn't mean it hasn't happened though! Just that I can't remember.

      In Caid, crossbows are a separate division and compete separately from handbows.

      Thank you for the information.

      Are there any restrictions for crossbows in any of the competitions?
